what about Elvis, MJ, LIttle Richard, Madonna, etc., impersonations, some by other celebs? Why should Prince be excluded?

There's Dread Zeppelin who does reggae versions of Led Zeppelin songs with an Elvis impersonator as the lead singer. Lots of people go to see tribute bands. PBS used to show entire concerts by Beatles & Pink Floyd tribute bands and there were many people in the audience. Phil Collins actually sat in on drums one time in the Genesis tribute band The Musical Box who only does Peter Gabriel era stuff. There's another band who does Beatle songs in a Metallica style called Beatallica and the all women tribute band Lez Zeppelin.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Cant wait for it tomorrow night. Better get a BIG bowl of popcorn started for this one. I hope it is well done, and just keeping his music in the public forefront helps my soul. Now can someone tell me why he is not in the Songwriter's Hall of Fame? Surely the controversies of the 80's and 90's are over by now... Does Tipper Gore still want to blackball him on this? Just askin.

question

Good morning children...take a look out your window.

well it being a 'sitcom' doesn't equal 'cheesy'

I still don't like the comical way t seems to be presented.

Prince wasn't a clown, and the styles were reflective of the music.

Have U ever watched Blackish before? The show is brilliant with how they handle tough subjects like racism and other social ills. They know how to be serious when the need arises.

You'll see.

Oh YEAH. They got all up into the name change, the word Slave on the face.

Grandma been reading his liner notes. This is so cool. I think he'd kind of like this. There's humor but its balanced with teaching the audience some things of substance about him.

I've read that a while back but I don't recall the source and I don't think I was ever sure it was really the meaning P. intended for the song.
